Gif animation runs slow on android only

Post by Joe Kot » Mon Mar 14, 2016 2:11 pm

I've imported a gif animation into livecode and the app(anim) works fine on my windows pc. But when I build the app and put it on any android tablet it runs at only 1 frame per second - about a 10th of its normal speed.

Found the problem. Evidently livecode has a limit to either gif file size or number of frames. Went from 51 frames(981kb) to 9 frames(208kb) and the smaller gif animation plays at the correct speed.

There should not be a limit on the number of frames in LC. Please consider submitting a bug report with examples of the working and non-working GIFs in a stack so this can be better optimized.

It seems to still be an issue. Any word on the bug report for this?
